Comparative Bordeaux Tasting
Vintages 1995 & 1996

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Tribeca Grill
375 Greenwich St.
New York, NY

$600 per person

Join Hart Davis Hart Wine Co. in New York City for an exciting walk-around tasting featuring the highly-regarded tandem vintages 1995 and 1996. Of the twenty Châteaux represented, we will pour all five of the First Growths: Haut-Brion, Lafite Rothschild, Latour, Margaux and Mouton Rothschild. They will be joined by traditional favorites La Mission Haut-Brion, Cheval Blanc, Pichon-Lalande, Lynch-Bages, and Léoville-Las-Cases.

The weather for the 1995 vintage consisted of a mild winter and early spring followed by a dry, hot summer. The best wines are very ripe and display good concentration and structure. The weather patterns for the 1996 vintage were unusual for a great year - warm and dry in June and July and then cool and damp throughout much of August. The wines from ‘96 are rich, complex, and beautifully balanced, packed with ripe, pure fruit.

We hope you can join us as we taste and explore these great vintages.
